Does anyone have one of these Thermomix gadgets and are they sufficiently cracked up?
The wife loves her's. Uses it nearly daily, whether its pancakes, boiled eggs, cakes, soup, baby food, risotto, steaming dumplings or hotdogs, endless really. We were fortunate to get ours as a gift. Which poses the question, if we didn't get one as a gift, would we spend 2 grand.....before being exposed to one, no way. After using it for over a year, absolutely. It's one of those purchases where you would feel sick the moment you shell out the cash thinking you've wasted your money. It's only after using it you realise its a bloody handy tool in the kitchen. It's expensive, but it's so easy to use, easy to clean and it gives you the freedom to punch in the setting, let it do its thing and wait for the buzzer when its done. Sure beats standing at a pot stirring risotto for 20 minutes.
